Topic of the Week: International vs Domestic
This week in particular is a good example of people attempting to take lessons from around the world (especially Europe) about how anarchists should behave, and, by extension, what makes a good anarchist.
Does that work? How do you and your friends negotiate the differences of culture, police capacity, city structure, etc, that create different visions and expectations and abilities for anarchists in various places?
For the more philosophical among you, what do you think of the implicit (tacit) internationalism of blanket comparisons between scenes in different places?
(We also, of course, take lessons from history, which are just as complicated, given that it is fair to say that things are really different now than they were when (for example) Emile Henry was alive, or Novatore, or Sasha Berkman, etc. but perhaps that is a question for another time.)
